I'm not an active developer of KiCad regarding to the source code, but
may I suggest to look at git-send-email [1] that almost solves such
problems with embedded patchsets. And mostly for all systems you are
working with, I'm not sure about Windows but should be possible by using
msmtp [2].

This problem isn't new and not only happen to KiCad. The Linux kernel is
dealing with such challenges for a long time. Since the introducing of
Git as the new VCS for the linux kernel development there was also
introduced a perl script after some times that is mailing a set of patches.

There are plenty good websites out there which describing the usage of
git-send-email [3]. It's free software so don't hesitate to copy and
past. :-)
For testing you can simply mail patches or sets of patches to yourself.

I'd glad to help to write something for the website on kicad-pcb.org.
